The engagement ring is the key to the event, and as visual merchandising prop and cake topper maybe also the key to the Wedding Cake sale at this specialty bakery. What other visual would be as powerful, or in this case, as large. See that the engagement promise is carried through with a Wedding Band as alternate visual. Could this propping be used in Fine or Fashion Jewelry Visual Merchandising? Possibly if used with taste. Seen at Bakery Delight, Plains PA.
Halloween is far more than just fun. Halloween generates billions of dollars in economic activity. Average Halloween buyer spending in 2015 was $74.34 per celebrant totaling $6.9 billion nationally (Source “Halloween Spending, Statistics, Facts and Trends“) If you are a retailer, Halloween should be on your radar as a marketing and profit opportunity. See how others in the field handle the challenge via Visual Merchandising, and store outfitting.
Want a a visual merchandising look that’s “Gangsta?” Lack a budget and props? If you can tie a knot you can Shoefiti. Tie it low or toss it high to wrap around hooks, bars and overhead elements and you are on you way to a “look.” All you really need are shoelaces.
I suggest that you need not actually use sheaves of wheat to get this effect, but the visual merchandising ties perfectly with baked goods. Sheaves are bound all the more creatively with stands of plant fiber themselves. A nice finishing touch if you can manage the bow. See from all distances in the gallery of images.
Curious. Though the Fuchsia color is trendy the bust does not seem to bear much resemblance to the anyone with the name Adriano Goldschmied. Possibly a brand spokesmodel, or even more likely retail propping. But do see how a splash of color and sculptural art creates a visual point of interest to draw the shopper into an otherwise overwhelming product array. This girl is certainly earning her visual merchandising pay. Step through the gallery to see the effect from several distances.
While carrying only Macys® signs and multi-directional Header Cards here, I initially categorized this as a Visual Merchandising or Sign Support Cart. But look close to see the overhanging arm for hanging clothing, and flat working surface for folding. I’ll bet in reality this is a work cart from Apparel. Do you think it on loan, or Visual Merchandising finally rose up in revolt and took it ‘cause they wanted cart support? Check it out closely in the gallery of images.
An Establishing Shot does just that, sets up the scene for what is to follow. Here just such a Kate Spade® overview sets the stage for detailed posts to follow, on Kate Spade® Spring Flowers and Kate Spade® Bumble Bees in Motion. But see that even the overall scene is worthy of appreciation. Step through stepped zooms in the Gallery of images, then follow the unfolding Window Dressing drama in a fashion befitting FixturesCloseUp below.
If the merchandise itself is of striking countenance, no shame in using it to promote its own sale. Colorful and asymmetrically hung, with a crown of pillows, visual merchandising has done all it could here to put a good foot forward. The wolf’s stare is most engaging, though I liked the colors of the bear offering. Click through the thumbnail and gallery of images to inspect visual merchandising and staging.
“Black Hat” normally refers to the bad guys, but here BCBG® Max Azria uses one as a counterpoint to Winter White apparel merchandising. A nice point of focus, and since no such hats were offered in-store, a prop only. But so stylish I can imagine the Visual Merchandiing Staff taking it home when the display is changed. Step through various views in the thumbnail and gallery below. Scroll down for more BCBG and Hat merchandising and fixtures.
Another of the many creative Visual Merchandising interpretations of the Macys® “Believe” Holiday tagline. I do not know if a single person is responsible for all, each store creates its own, or headquarters sends a catalog of designs from which to choose. Maybe they are all stock, and after Christmas, each is packed into a box and passed to the next store on the list. That way the same display is not used twice at the same store. CLICK the thumbnail for an alternate view of this design.
Simple white-painted wood dowels on a hole-puched backboard create an oversize Pegboard for High Heels (or anything else) display. Displayed so cavalierly, the shoes hint at a lifestyle not just style. The counterpoint on this board is a silk scarf loosely knotted and draped. CLICK the thumbnail for an alternate view.
